I thought I would share the study plan that Marianne has put together for this deep meditation we are doing in our Life Group for the month of June. If you would like to follow along here is the plan for week 1 (Our Life Group is on Tuesday nights so that is while the week runs Wednesday to Tuesday 🙂 ).
WEEK 1: I John 1:1-2:17
WEDNESDAY: Pray before you begin. Through your prayer time, ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to see His truth in His word and to open your heart to allow His word to take deep root. Next, read I John 1:1-10.
THURSDAY: Follow the above structure of prayer, then read I John 2:1-6
FRIDAY: Follow the above structure of prayer, then read I John 2:7-16
SATURDAY: Follow the above structure of prayer, then read I John 2:12-17
SUNDAY: Choose a verse or a topic/section of verses and meditate on them all day. If you aren’t sure what meditation looks like, search God’s word for examples, find a podcast, or talk with other Christians who might help you define it.
MONDAY: Re-read chapter 1 and write a personal theology. *This is NOT a competition nor is it for a grade. This process is about seeking to know and understand God’s word at a deeper level so that we begin to see God’s foundation for our lives. Reading God’s word should be a process of gaining understanding and wisdom and this exercise helps us SEE it.
TUESDAY: Re-read chapter 2:1-17 and write a personal theology.
